And what about the thousands of other inmates who are using but not overdosing and who are funding this little side business by prison guards who already earn more than six figures and retire early on “stress”.

Best idea ever.

A friend of mine just posted a great idea on Facebook to get rid of of all the junk you want to get rid of but which might subject you to a fine by the recycle police. Just put it all in AMAZON boxes, retake the boxes and then leave them on your front porch. In most neighborhoods he says this is guaranteed to work.

There is a chance they overdose too. Thus solving the prison overcrowding "crisis".


Prison overcrowding will be solved by “chance”? Explain

Apparently a great many are not “cleaning”.

That job is one of the safest and softest jobs in law enforcement and it comes with a stress related early retirement at the end. When was the last time you saw a BART cop in a BART station or on a BART train, in harms way, with BART riders.

“Also, 1m Jews were expelled from all over the middle east 1938-1960. It was the first act of free Algeria and Iraq btw.“

In 1948 actually as a result of the first Israeli/Palestinian war, and not btw from every Arab country e.g. Iraq and Iran.

He may have intended to dissuade others from doing the same.

“Why are you dredging up a 9 year old story that was headline front page LA Times news in 2009?”


If you had actually read the post you would know that this case was actually tried in 2012 and is still the subject of several ongoing investigations

Let me explain the importance of this case to you. Science and technology have not only greatly improved the detection of crime, innocence and identification but have also made it much more difficult to conceal police incompetence and malfeasance. This is a huge benefit for taxpayers.

You would have to read the first paragraph to find that out.

Actually the law permits sharing information on dangerous gang members with federal authorities. So the question is, did the sherrifs office do that, or not?

Eventually we will learn that the sheriffs office never notified Homeland Security that an illegal immigrant they believed to be a Surenos gang member, and convicted of two DUIs was living in Stanislaus County, which is their responsibility under state law.

Does it come with a "Convince the Zoning Board" guarantee?

The state of California now mandates zoning approval for ADUs (granny units) in all California municipalities.

And you don’t need a large lot.

California simply screwed up and now blame shutdown. Fake news!


”Fake news” as in it isn’t true, or as in you support the shut down and have no plans to fly?

Peter H. Christiansen
Peter H. Christiansen A US biotechnology start-up has entered the race to promote longevity and find treatments for age-related diseases. Life Biosciences will on Monday announce the completion of a $50m funding round — twice its original target — to invest in a range of approaches to extending healthy life.

“We have been operating in stealth mode until now,” said Tristan Edwards, an Australian investment professional who founded the Boston-based company in 2016 with David Sinclair, professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School. “We have undertaken a big land-grab of longevity-related intellectual property and we have pulled together a lot of the world’s longevity scientists.”

Longevity is a rapidly expanding sector of the biotech industry, as scientists learn more about the way biological pathways fail in old age. Investors in Life Biosciences are mainly wealthy individuals and family trusts, reflecting a widespread view that ageing millionaires are keen to put some of their money into longevity research.

You can add Life Biosciences to the list of biotech startups looking to make a name for themselves in the burgeoning field of anti-aging drug research.


David Sinclair
The Boston-based biotech — which has close ties to David Sinclair, a Harvard geneticist who’s been involved in a variety of startups — says today that it’s lined up $50 million in B round cash. There’s no word on who exactly is investing in the company, but there’s no shortage of ambition.


Tristan Edwards
“We have undertaken a big land-grab of longevity-related intellectual property and we have pulled together a lot of the world’s longevity scientists,” Life CEO Tristan Edwards told the Financial Times in a preview of the announcement. Edwards co-founded the company alongside Sinclair.

The FT notes that the money is coming from wealthy investors attracted to the longevity field, but also offers no specifics. The report adds that the company valuation is set at an estimated $500 million.

Life’s claim to fame is that it’s pursuing what the team describes as “all 8” pathways involved in aging, which includes some familiar targets ranging from cell senescence to stem cell exhaustion and mitochondria dysfunction related to the body’s battery packs. And they’ve established 6 subsidiary units to go after these targets in a collaborative fashion, with Senolytic going after the old cells that accumulate in our bodies as we grow older.

Edwards is a transplant from Australia, which may help explain why Life just days ago invested $7.5 million in Prana Biotechnology $PRAN, a small Melbourne-based outfit that’s been engaged for years in high-risk neurodegeneration work.

Anti-aging research has looped in a variety of players, from Google’s Calico to Unity and Juvenescence. Others in biotech are targeting aging related diseases, like muscle weakness, but going after specific ailments along the path to longevity.

Looks like the New York Times wants to clear the path for Kirsten Gillibrand.

Anyway, I agree with Kamala on this:

"Ms. Harris also championed state legislation under which parents whose children were found to be habitually truant in elementary school could be prosecuted, despite concerns that it would disproportionately affect low-income people of color."

Incredible they are worrying about the parents instead of the kid's future

I also agree with her on this.

It has the highest rate of student loan defaults of any occupational category. The Tuition is the same as a medical school but it pays the same as a medical assistant only without benefits. Worse than a dead end career.

If you actually read the article, it makes perfect sense. Traffic is a function of population or housing density and counties that are no growth don’t need the additional money as much as counties that are trying to solve the housing shortage.

Why don’t police agencies invite people to voluntarily donate DNA samples which could be used to identify, clear, and connect, family members to crimes? I think many people would volunteer.

Since there is no cost for land, these units could be built for a much lower price per unit
